You Better Watch Out

Tessa and Eden did cry, just a bit. But we did an official Santa picture!

What can I say? I have a family full of yo-yo-ers. I better get used to it, all those competitions I am going to be watching.

Leaves and Snow

I am grateful to my Heavenly Father for allowing nature to provide a place for my kidlets to play, allowing the twinado to stay outside, entertained, at least for a bit. Leaving my house with 5 minutes peace. 18 month twins, you can imagine the chaos.

Enjoying the fall.

And the rest of Halloween I didn't ever post . . .

And I just realized this is my 200th post!!! It took just under 1 1/2 to get to the 100th post, and twice that amount of time to get the the 200th, so much has happened since I started this blog when Logan was just a little 3 month old :) About 4 1/2 years ago.

Don't Be Scared

Wolverine is a good guy. Pretty sure Logan is aware of that.

I might swap the Panda and the Cowgirl for trick-or-treating. The cowgirl wouldn't keep her hat or shirt on . . .

Our pumpkin we have yet to carve . . . but we will ;)

Happy Halloween!

A little of this, a little of that

Mr. Tall, dark, and handsome had a birthday.

Lucky me, my parents watched the kids overnight, so we had a full-on date, dinner, pool, and walking the mall together past 6:30PM. Awesome. Glad he asked me to be his wife 7 years ago.

Just for fun, my Grandma Wood made this dress for me, and I finally got around to trying it on the girls.

Just so you know how hard it is to take pics of these crazy 17 month-old ladies.

Logan took this picture a little over a year ago . . .

and this one about a month ago.

My babies are growing up. Bittersweet as always.

Love that Fall thing

Just something about it, maybe my electric bill, maybe the colors of the beautifully changing leaves in the canyon I got to drive by 4 times, maybe how cute my girls look in orange and black, maybe how funny it is to see Logan dress up in his Halloween costume, maybe watching football, but I just love the fall.

Just became forward facers!!!

1st Live Football Game

For Logan that is. Thanks to our fabulous neighbors Logan and Josh enjoyed some bonding time. They went to some pre-game tailgating and Logan won the big finger!

Josh let him take some pictures. He really liked that the band made a "Y" on the field.

And he took this picture of a chair that some friendly seat-neighbors let him borrow for awhile. He stayed awake the whole game and had a lot of fun.

No . . . these ladies did not attend. They were sleeping before the game even started, but I managed to get a couple of cute pics the other day.

As you can see in the background, trying on shoes is an important part of the day.

So cute. Makes up for all that chasing around I do all day :)

Just a Glimpse

Because Josh reminded me that I really am gonna miss this. "This" being twin toddlers and a 4 year old. Sometimes in the moment it is hard to realize that someday the girls will clean up after themselves and not be so outwardly needy. This Logan preschool thing has helped me see that my children can and will have a life outside of me. He is learning and growing and I am not involved in every second of it. And that is ok, hard sometimes, but ok. And so too, the girls will reach that point, but right now I happen to be an important part of the busy world they run around in. I want to start paying attention to what is happening instead of all the things I am not getting done. Because raising babies is time-consuming stuff.
  • Tessa spends a lot of time holding her baby and bringing the blanket over to me so she can wrap him up. Then she says, "Shh, shh, shh." while she rocks him.
  • Eden loves the story of the three little bears and will bring the book over, say "bears" and back-up to sit in my lap to listen to the story, saying "mmm" on the page that says that. Both girls love to read books, although Tessa sometimes "tosses" the book a bit hard indicating she would like to have it read.
  • Dressing the girls each day is pretty much always my decision, which is fun, and they both still love trying on clothes and shoes.
  • Singing songs is a nightly family ritual before the girls go to bed. Both girls do the actions to "Once there was a snowman" and "Eency weency spider" and it is pretty darn cute.
  • Logan says pretty funny things quite often. I need to start carrying a notepad around to jot them down as he says them, because I always forget.
  • While the girls are obviously not into cooperative play yet, they do play well together for the most part, I even put Logan and myself in the gate yesterday and we built with legos while the girls played with the pretend kitchen.
  • Sometimes we go outside to watch for Josh to come home. The girls both start yelling, "Dad!" and "Dad-dy!" when they see him coming.
  • my girls and Mr. Logan are pretty-good sleepers. They all go to bed fairly easily and early, which is awesome.
  • I am going to finish the 2nd consecutive book before we meet for book-club!

Perhaps the one of the best things of all is that Logan is planning on becoming a chef and opening his own restaurant. Quite possibly the best thing imaginable. The mother of a chef? Yes, please. He even told Josh one day that he could come work in his restaurant. The other day at lunch Logan asked for a camera and took this picture . . .

a portion of his lunch. Applesauce with a bit of cinnamon and sugar, alongside a gogurt. Perhaps you may also visit his restaurant one day. I believe it is going to be his version of American classics. Macaroni and cheese most definitely will be served.
